Peabody Silent Auction Ends Wednesday!

The February snow shut down our annual chili cook-off, but it didn’t stop generous businesses from donating auction items for Peabody Elementary.

Screenshot 2014-02-19 23.32.37Our PTA has decided not to reschedule this year’s chili event.

So we’re doing something a little different —  a SILENT AUCTION on Facebook! 

How does it work? Items went up on our Facebook event page Friday, February 21st. In the comment box under each item, you place your bid. Just like in any silent auction, highest bidder wins!

We will close all bidding Wednesday, February 26th at 5pm CST.

What do we have? We have gift certificates and packages from restaurants like Sweet Grass and Central BBQ. You can bid on summer camp and swimming lesson packages.  Plus, gift packages from Harrah’s Casino, Goner Records and Midtown Framers! And more.

What can you do? Share this event with family and friends all over Facebook. Items are from local businesses, so your Memphis area friends will find this auction most valuable!

Here is the Facebook Event Page for the Peabody Elementary Silent Auction! 

Thank you for supporting Peabody Elementary in the heart of Midtown Memphis!
